We Broke apart and turned around. I froze... This can’t be real, it can’t be. Derek stood a few feet away from us. I gripped Niall’s arm tightly, all he had to do is look at me for 5 seconds to realize who this was. This was the guy who followed me home and gave me this scar. Niall shielded me with his body.
“What’s your name?” Niall’s asked in a cold tone. I had to get Niall somewhere safe. I didn’t want him to get hurt. Adrenaline was running through my body as I tried to think of a way to get Niall out of here.
“Derek,” he said without an icy chill. By now we were in the alley way of the store. I looked around for some kind of weapon, but it was too dark to see anything. Derek and I made eye contact for a few seconds before Niall stood in front of me, causing Derek to be out of my view completely.
“What are you doing with my girl?” Derek asked Niall coming closer. I cringed when he said the words, ‘my girl’. I saw Niall’s hand go into his pocket and dug out a cell phone. He slowly handed it over to me, I knew what he wanted me to do. I quickly texted one of his bodyguard's our situation and location. I just hope they would get to us soon.
“I’m Not your girl anymore Derek,” I said without thinking. I felt Niall tense up when I spoke. Derek did nothing but chuckle. I heard footsteps coming towards us and my heart stopped beating. Did Derek have back-up? Is this the end of Niall and I being together? Just then Derek got hit over the head with something hard, he fell on the ground, It was Niall’s bodyguard.
“Come on!” he yelled, motioning us to get out of the alley. I was about to step over Derek when he grabbed my leg, making me fall backwards.
“Niall!” I screamed. He turned around to see Derek getting on top of me.
I turned around and Derek on top of Rachel. I saw him pull out something from his pocket and my heart stopped. The knife in Derek’s hand inched closer to Rachel’s collar bone. There was no time to shout over to my bodyguard, There was no time at all. I tilted my shoulder down and ran towards Derek. I knocked him off Rachel and pinned him to the ground, I took the knife from his hand and threw it to Rachel. She caught it, got up and ran over to my bodyguard. I knocked Derek out and walked over to Rachel.
“Are you ok?” I asked her checking her for any injuries.
“I’m fine…. Thank you for saving me,” She said, cupping my cheek. I put my hand over her’s and bent down until my lips touched hers, sparks flew everywhere.
“Let’s go home,” I murmured in her ear. We slowly walked toward the airport neither of us happy about the long flight in front of us.
